Vicki started her massage therapy career in Vancouver at Life Chiropractic and Massage, after graduating from Vancouver's West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2005. Vicki quickly established a thriving, client-friendly practice and, in January 2011, independently opened Massage Therapy on Dunbar. After 7 years and 8 therapists working in a busy office, Vicki expanded again in 2018 opening a second clinic, Massage Therapy in Point Grey. Vicki's goal is to offer the residents of Vancouver, Kitsilano, Kerrisdale and the UBC area a truly unique massage therapy experience. Vicki is pleased to offer every client professional care in a beautiful, relaxing environment.
Vicki believes that the combination of nutrition, exercise, and soft tissue release, through massage therapy, are integral aspects for maintenance of optimal health and balance to the body and mind. Vicki adapts every massage therapy treatment to each individual, helping to create this balance for her Vancouver clients.
Catering to individual massage therapy needs requires that Vicki call upon her wide range of massage techniques, acquired during her 3000 hours of intense training at West Coast College. She also implements the new variations that she learns through continuing education courses.
Vicki's focus is on Attachment Release, Trigger Point Therapy, and Deep Tissue Release, utilizing her elbows and knuckles when needed. While working with deep tissue, Vicki believes in applying pressure slowly, thus minimising discomfort and allowing the body to relax completely. Treatments range from specific work on chronic areas and injuries, to full body muscle, tension, and stress reduction.
